TRENDSETTER Hawks advanced to all three age group semi-finals as action in the Republic Bank National Youth Football League continued yesterday.
Matches were played at the Queen’s Park Savannah in Port of Spain and at Canaan Grounds in Tobago.
Youngsters braved heavy downpours at the Queen’s Park Savannah.
In the Under-11 quarter-finals Hawks crushed Trincity Nationals 7-0 at the Savannah, while Hawks edged Jaric Titans 1-0 in Tobago in the Under- 13 division. Hawks got past FC Santa Rosa 5-2 in the Under-15 division with Hawks getting goals from Malachi Celestine, Josiah Edwards, Daniel David, Christian Smith and Kaihim Thomas.
The North Zone Under- 19 final was also scheduled to be held yesterday between Trendsetter Hawks and St Ann’s Rangers.
Unfortunately that match was postponed to allow the Under-15 match between Hawks and Santa Rosa to be played.
The Under-15 clash between Police and Petrotrin Palo Seco was postponed because of a water-logged field.
The semi-finals will be held next weekend at Constantine Park, Macoya, while the finals are set for July 1 at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Mucurapo.
Event co-ordinator Anthony Harford told Newsday that 90 teams have participated in the league. He said this will ensure the youngsters are well-prepared and they will graduate to adult level by way of the feeder programmes run by each club.
